And...it could probably use an update or two. Product development is moving more slowly these days, but still, there is a bit of new stuff.

So...does anyone have any new heli manual links or data that should be considered for the first post?

Happy holidays all.

R/C Micro World

For the past year, I have been contributing articles on micro helis to R/C Micro World.

Former AMA president John Worth started this online magazine after the print version discontinued and has done a great job of reporting on this specialty area of our hobby. A recent issue is free for the browsing and an annual subscription is modestly priced.


Check out an issue to see if your appetite might be whetted:


Here is the May issue, which includes the mCP article:


This month's article is about the mCX Tandem Rescue. (An index to heli articles available is included at the end of each article.) Last month's article showed how to tame the mSR with the use of negative exponentials. (Dated, it's now May!)


Ps: the attached photos and cartoon should give you a flavor. The first tandem designed by Frank Piasecki, the father of the full scale Tandem Rescue, was called the flying banana, which begged the cartoon. The tale of the mSR includes a chapter where we learn that even indoor helis can be grabbed by trees!

PPs: the mCP MUST be added to this list! What an astounding piece of engineering. The May issue of RCMW has a full article with contributions from two VERY accomplished CP heli pilots (I am NOT one of them! But I do add my design for "training floats" which sure helped this fledging CP pilot.) I am up to 142 flights without breaking anything other than blade links since I added the training floats.

Update: The July issue of RCMW can be downloaded by joining the group. Last month's issue is available to review for no cost. In the July issue, I review the 120 SR and show readers how to make a very simple set of training floats! This is a great outdoors fixed pitch heli.

Micro Heli Tail motor wires w/connector

Due to customer demand I now have the tail motor wires with connector available.

These work on the MCP-X and others that use a micro 2-pin male connector. (120SR? MSR? Not exactly sure, I'm not a heli guy.)

Available at RC-Connectors.com:


Your choice of either 26 or 28 gauge
